    Yankees SP Michael Pineda goes only six, but beats White Sox

    Yankees starter Michael Pineda outduelded White Sox ace Chris Sale on Thursday, as he struck out six while allowing one run on eight hits across six innings in a 3-2 win. The successful outing is nice to see as he drew 18 swinging strikes, but the length is becoming worrisome. Pineda has not eclipsed 100 pitches in seven straight starts and it looks as though he is being handled with kid gloves. The oft-injured Pineda has all the potential in the world, but he becomes limited when he can't go deep into games. This might be a case of the Yankees saving him for the playoffs, but could also lower his Fantasy value going into next season.

    Yankees SP Michael Pineda beats Mets for 11th win

    Yankees starter Michael Pineda picked up his 11th win of the season Saturday, tossing 5 1/3 scoreless innings and allowing four hits and a walk while striking out four. Two of the hits lead off the sixth inning for the Mets, forcing manager Joe Girardi into using a quick hook in a game the Yankees couldn't afford to let slip through their fingers. Pineda now has just one quality start in five outings since coming off the DL at the end of August, but he'll look to build on this shutout performance in his next start, at home Thursday against the White Sox.
